Seven Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee are calling on the Obama administration to declassify more information about Russia’s alleged interference in the U.S. election.
“We believe there is additional information concerning the Russian Government and the U.S. election that should be declassified and released to the public," said the members, led by Sen. Ron Wyden, in a brief letter sent Tuesday to President Barack Obama. "We are conveying specifics through classified channels.”
In October, the administration accused Moscow of deploying its hackers to target U.S. political organizations and political operatives’ email accounts in an attempt to meddle in the presidential election.
The administration has stood by the charge, but last week claimed it had seen no evidence of hackers tampering with the actual vote tallies, despite recount efforts being requested by Green Party candidate Jill Stein in several states that were key to Donald Trump’s victory.
